ESA Permafrost Climate Change Initiative (Permafrost_cci): Permafrost version 3 data products
This collection of data forms the Permafrost Climate Research Data Package (CRDP v2), which comprises the Version 3.0 Permafrost data products from the European Space Agency's (ESA) Climate Change Initiative (CCI) Permafrost project. Data products include Ground Temperature, Active Layer Thickness and Permafrost Extent for the Northern Hemisphere (north of 30°) for the period 1997-2019. They are derived from a thermal model driven and constrained by satellite data. Gridded products are released in annual files, covering the start to the end of the Julian year. This corresponds to average annual ground temperatures, as well as the maximum depth of seasonal thaw, which corresponds to the active layer thickness.
